NaPoWriMo Day 28 – Natural Beauty

I wrote this on my lunch break, it’s impossible not to be inspired by nature when I am surrounded by it every day. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

It’s like an impressionist painting
so many colours, hues
merging into one

if I half-close my eyes
they blur together even more
softly contorting until
it’s as if a work of art
has truly come to life.

Nature is the greatest artist
of them all

with the world her canvas
to experiment, explore,

who are we to taper
or change it

why on earth would we want to alter
this incredible
natural beauty.

We’re merely passing through
the most wonderful gallery imaginable

enjoying, admiring
marvelling, loving
living

taking only memories
and leaving nothing
but footprints. . .
